In order to ensure the safety of all of our Walk participants and their loved ones, the Northern Ohio 2021 Walk to Defeat ALS events will take place as "Mini-Walks" all around town! We’ll start the day with a live presentation over the internet, then you can “Walk Your Way” on a route of your choosing whether it’s at a local park, around your neighborhood, around your yard, or even around your living room. Join us as we spread our message of hope all around the region!

How to get a 2021 Walk to Defeat ALS T-Shirt

Statistically speaking, someone around the world is diagnosed with ALS every 90 minutes, and every 90 minutes someone loses their battle with ALS. Recognizing the importance of "every 90 minutes," the T-shirt minimum is $90. It is our hope that this minimum will reinforce this critical statistic and help you develop a better understanding of the disease.

Remember - official Walk to Defeat ALS t-shirts are given to registered Walk participants who raise $90 or more. This benefit is awarded to registrants who raise funds, not to teams or donors. If you have a donor who would like a shirt, we recommend asking them to register as a member of your team and make a self-donation.


Our Walk to Defeat ALS sponsors provide the financial base needed to conduct the Walks - our largest fundraising events of the year. Thanks to both our participants and our sponsors, our Chapter is able to provide critical services for approximately 300 people and their families in Northern Ohio. We have them all featured on a sponsor webpage with links to their websites. Please pay them a visit!
